Rāmāyaṇa tradition in northeast Bhārat by Virag Pachpore


From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

By Swami Harshananda

Vātsalyabhāva is one of the several types of bhakti or devotion. It is the love of a devotee towards God and that of a mother towards her child. Yaśodā’s love for the child Kṛṣṇa and Kausalyā’s towards the child Rāma are classic examples of this sentiment. Rāmakṛṣṇa Paramahamsa[1] retained this attitude towards Mother Kālī till the end.


  1. Rāmakṛṣṇa Paramahamsa lived in A. D. 1836- 1886.
